Have you ever slept in your makeup or attacked that zit on your face with your fingers? We're all guilty of making common skin care mistakes.
It's how we handle these mistakes, however, that will affect our skin.
Read below as we share fast fixes for common skin care mistakes.
You are not a professional esthetician! And even if you are one, you will never get the appropriate angles to fully extract everything inside of a pimple ensuring it won’t come back!
The Fix: Next time, see a professional. In the meantime, apply a serum for problem skin with BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acids) to even the appearance of skin and use an overnight cream to help target problem areas.
Besides the fact that sodium intake for Americans is way too high to begin with, an excess amount of sodium causes the body to retain water, which causes “puffy-face”.
The Fix: Drink your daily recommended amount of water!
Though you hear this advice all the time from skin care experts, it’s because it really works.
Your body is over 60% water so imagine how much you actually need every day, then look at the tiny half-empty water bottle you’re drinking from. It’s probably not enough!
Also, to reduce the appearance of puffiness in those eyes in a hurry, use eye pads with tea extracts and place them across your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes.
You’re sealing your skin off all day from moisture when you apply makeup, so getting the necessary hydration before you cover up is essential.
The Fix: Use a lightweight facial spray if your skin is feeling dry. This will help hydrate your skin while also help setting your makeup.
All the grime and dirt that has managed to make its way onto your face is still there, stuck, and now it has an environment of oil and bacteria to grow in.
